Breakthrough: Politics and Republicanism in the Age of Dewey

Authors: The Editors of the Chicago Daily Tribune.

Publish Date: January 20th, 1949.

Thoughts from the authors:

  • "Dewey chose to get into politics for the most upstanding of reasons, and has achieved much more than his parents could have hoped."
  • Dewey is a man of "immense accomplishments."
  • "We (the press)'re very lazy when we think about Republicans in this country."
  • "So why aren't there more of them? That's a failure of news organizations, mostly newspapers, to support and promote Republicans."
